                  string HTML = "";
                  HTML = "<table><tr><td>test</td></tr></table>";
            
                  Control objControl = this.Page.ParseControl(HTML);
                  this.placeholder.Controls.Add(objControl);


                  //Response.Clear();
                  Response.Buffer= true;

I think it's because you have flushed BEFORE you set the placeholder to visible. If it's not visible, it may not generate any HTML.
I'm assuming this is after PreRender. In it's before PreREnder, then it won't have gotten round to generating the HTML.

Then you are nto going to see any HTML in the output because none has been generated. yet.
Why are you flushing in OnInit? At that stage you have pretty much nothing to flush.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

no I'm not flushing inside OnInit().. but After.. I'm flushing inside a Button_Onclick() event  that it's called after OnInit()... and

"Then you are nto going to see any HTML in the output because none has been generated. yet" ..I'm adding the html to the control .. i think it should  be there, unless i'm not doind some kind of refreshing..

               HTML = "<table><tr><td>test</td></tr></table>";
         
               Control objControl = this.Page.ParseControl(HTML);
               this.placeholder.Controls.Add(objControl);

Before the render method no html will be written to the output stream therefore Response.Flush() does not change anything. Response.Buffer should be changed in the beginning of the pages lifecycle so that either all contents or nothing is buffered.

Place this code in OnPreRender:

              placeholder.Controls.Clear();

               string HTML = "";
               HTML = "<table><tr><td>test</td></tr></table>";
         
               Control objControl = this.Page.ParseControl(HTML);
               this.placeholder.Controls.Add(objControl);
               Response.Buffer= true;

Place this code in the overriden Render method:

               this.placeholder.Visible = true;
               Response.Flush();
               Thread.Sleep(15000);

Argh! The Visible property needs also to be set in the prerender method - else Render() will not produce any html.

this works and you see the page 'filling up", it seams the Reponse object does not recognise the setting of Buffer to true until it has flushed the response automatically, I just pushed 300 spaces onto the stream as a test and it works.

            private void Button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            {
                  Response.Buffer= true;

//                  Response.Write( "0123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789<br>" );
                  Response.Write( "                                                                                                        " );
                  Response.Write( "                                                                                                        " );
                  Response.Write( "                                                                                                        " );

                  Response.Flush();


                  Response.Write("test2");
                  for( int i = 0  ; i < 100 ; i ++ )
                  {
                        
                        Response.Write( string.Format("Message {0}<br>" , i ) ) ;
                        Response.Flush();
                        System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(100);
                  }
            }
